She had a great day yesterday. Chris and I took her to the park and she ran around and played fetch with us. She also played with other dogs too. Then when I was outside doing a bit of gardening Chris brought her out to watch me work so she was outside a good portion of the day yesterday.
She was even introduced to the hose for the first time when I watered the garden beds after planting some new plants. She kept trying to drink the water as I sprayed the garden.
Today though, I’m not feeling so hot and since I haven’t slept I’m not really even that steady on my feet. So other than Chris taking her out a few times she hasn’t had that exciting a day.
Actually, she had us worried earlier. Chris took her to the park and he met a man with a one year old Chocolate lab and for some reason Chris felt comfortable enough to let Midnight off the leash in the park. That’s something we’d decided we weren’t going to do yet because she’s too young, too excitable and doesn’t always listen when she’s excited.
Apparently she did listen to Chris as she played with the other dog and came back to him when called, but when Chris came home with her she was panting really bad. We’d never heard her pant so hard or for so long. She just kept flopping down on the ground.
We gave her water and a couple of ice cubes in case she was both hot and thirsty, but still she kept panting. She finally seemed a lot better after about 15 minutes but she was really tired out and slept for a while.
Since that time she seems ok, but she keeps looking outside and whining. She can see the park from our front door. She can probably see dogs down there and kids playing on swing sets and I hope that’s the reason she’s whining.
She’s just acting odd.
